New Addition to the Wales Family: Bluebell the Rescue Pup
Sometimes fairytales do come true, even for dogs. Found abandoned in a park at just four weeks old, Bluebell didn’t have the best start in life. The tiny Jack Russell was in very bad shape; she suffered from starvation, cold, a severe skin condition that had stripped her of much of her hair, and was scared and bewildered.
Now, however, Bluebell has been nursed back to health and will have a fresh start and has been adopted as the Duchess of Cornwall’s newest pet. The playful pup, now nine weeks old, is apparently a hit with Camilla’s five grandchildren and has taken to the royal life like a duck to water. The tough beginning now forgotten, Bluebell has regained her confidence and is now a fun, active puppy that is always on the go and adores exploring new places.
Bluebell is not the first dog the Duchess has adopted from Battersea Dogs & Cats Home; about a year ago she took Beth, another Jack Russell Terrier pup, from the centre. Beth became such an adored pet that when the Battersea contacted Camilla with an offer of adopting a new puppy, she didn’t hesitate for a moment. The Duchess of Cornwall was all the more keen to care for a new pet after the recent loss of her two believed dogs, Tosca and Rosie.
Claire Horton, Chief Executive of Battersea says: “Once again the Duchess of Cornwall has given a second chance in life to a Battersea dog in need. Bluebell arrived at Battersea having had such an awful start in life, so we couldn’t be happier that she caught the eye of the Duchess and now has such a wonderful home. Bluebell will be an excellent companion for Beth and we’re confident she will bring a lot of pleasure to her new family.”Filed under British Royals
